Bulls top Raptors in game with a playoff feel

Bulls top Raptors in game with a playoff feel
Neither team played particularly great for any stretch with both squads going through long stretches of offensive dominance and offensive ineptitude. Chicago blew a 15 point lead in the first half and a 13 point lead in the second, but hung on to win on Jimmy Butler's block with two seconds to go...

Kings acquire Rudy Gay, what about Deng? Boozer?

Kings acquire Rudy Gay, what about Deng?  Boozer?
The Sacramento Kings acquired Rudy Gay in what looks like a fairly bizarre deal on the surface. The Kings, whom aren't really going anywhere, made a win now move for a player who won't actually help them win...

Loss to Raptors spoils Jimmy Butler's career night

Jimmy Butler put up career high 28 points on just 12 shot attempts, knocking down all three of his threes pointers and 10 looks all together. For much of the night Butler was the only thing the Bulls had going for them...

Bulls injuries reaching comical proportions

Do they really still have enough to win? Can the next man really step up? The Bulls will Hinrich, Belinelli, Butler, Boozer, and Mohammed against the Raptors tonight. Boozer is the only played who'd still be starting with the full complement of players available. The Raptors stink, but then again, so did the Pistons...

Bulls vs Raptors 7pm on WGN with some injury updates
Richard Hamilton and Derrick Rose are slowly on the mend. Derrick Rose ran in water which was the first type of running he's done, and Richard Hamilton was able to go through a non contact practice. Both players will likely miss another week, but they're making progress towards recovery...

20-0 4th quarter run saves Bulls from embarrassing defeat

Okay, I suppose no defeat is that embarrassing if Derrick Rose is sitting. The Bulls simply aren't a great team without Rose and will likely lose a couple games to teams they'd normally slaughter if he were playing. On top of that, good teams drop games to bad ones all here and there regardless. Still, when the bulls fell behind for the majority of the game, it was hard to watch...

Bulls at Raptors 6pm on WCIU - Going with what they have

Bulls at Raptors 6pm on WCIU - Going with what they have
The most interesting potential waiver pick up, Derek Fisher, appears likely to don a Thunder uniform when he clears waivers tonight. Chicago hasn't emerged in the rumor mill with any other notable players either. Though I suppose anything is possible. The most likely scenario is still that Chicago goes with what they have, and I endorse the idea of sticking with the chemistry they've developed all season...

Bulls vs Raptors 7pm on WGN

There's no rest for the weary in this shortened season, except in this case the Raptors as just as wary as the Bulls. Both teams are playing their 7th game in nine days. The Chicago Bulls return from Boston while the Toronto Raptors are coming off a loss in which they gave up a 22 point lead...

Bulls vs Raptors 7pm on WGN

The race for seeding slows down tonight as the Bulls are the only relevant top team playing.  They take on the Raptors at the United Center, in a game which they should be dialed into after losing to the Raptors in Toronto following the all-star break. Derrick Rose and company seem to take a ‘never... Read more »
